My Holiday Snaps from Kalos

Blurry, just like my eyes.

I took some wonderful photos (or rather, Phil the Usually Drunk Photo Guy did) on my travels around the Kalos region. Otherwise known as “that place in Pokémon X and Y”, which I wrote about here.

Unfortunately, you can only take photos at pre-determined spots in the game which makes recording your adventures for all eternity a bit difficult. But still – here’s all I have:

Sight-seeing in No Man’s Sky

Wish You Were Here?

That’s right, it’s yet another post about No Man’s Sky! I have been playing it rather a lot so of course I’m going to post about it a lot. That, and it is awesome.

Here are some great, and weird, things I’ve seen on my travels. Firstly, some gorgeous landscapes, where almost any screenshot is a work of beauty:

When the moon hits the sky…
no man's sky
A very welcoming entrance to Hell
This was a great planet. Quiet, nothing to kill me, purple trees
“Oh yes, we go to Aspen every year!”

Then there are some of the bizarre creatures I’ve stumbled across (and in some cases, spent hours searching for) on my journey through the stars:

The Filth of No Man’s Sky

Won’t somebody think of the children?

Presented mostly without comment, here is a gallery of some of the more suspect rock formations, flora and creatures I’ve so far come across in the wonderful game that is No Man’s Sky.

Stop giggling. This is serious business. Remember: if it’s rude, it’s you that thought it was, not me.

Yes.
Yes, it’s gold.

Uh huh.

Maybe see a doctor.

Hitler only had one.

Puckered.

Erm.

Then there’s this instruction:

And finally, this creature. Oh my.

Can you tell what it is yet?

Sorry

You know when you get a phrase in your head and have to make a picture of it otherwise it might never leave? No?

Oh. Just me then.

More Art of Toilets in Video Games

Crap post.

You may recall that something I collect is screenshots of toilets in the games that I play. For reasons I don’t fully understand, of course, but who doesn’t like a good WC in any game they happen to be playing? It’s the best bit.

I archive all the bogs I discover over on Tumblr, and here are a few I’ve found since my last post on the subject.

Firstly, some frustratingly inaccessible lavatorial areas, like this one from Grim Fandango. Manny can go in, but sadly, we can’t follow. Also, Manny is a skeleton so not sure how his waterworks, er, works.

Following on from bogs-you-can’t-enter in Persona 4 Golden, the very Persona-like Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE on the Wii U has a similar scenario:

Oh why must you tease us? See also the definitely not Sonic game Freedom Planet:

And this from Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival, where at one point in the game you clean these toilets, but you can never actually use them. Tch.

My wife now, Dave

Of course I named all my Pokémon Dave. Why wouldn’t I?

Shenmue at King of Servers

Is Shenmue III out yet?

You know the drill. “Can I help?” popup on a website, so they get asked Shenmue questions. Usually they just disconnect. Did King of Servers?

Not right away, no. But still disappointing to just chuck me off. Boo!

My Miitomo Photos Let Me Show You Them

Set eyes to “stunned”, Mr Worf.

Miitomo photos are a wonderful thing, even when you’re not trying to create any photos yourself and just rely on the app generating them randomly. Here’s a gallery of some of those from my private collection.
